FANUC America has added three new CNC training courses to its catalog of online offerings. The company has worked closely with CNC Concepts Inc. to develop online courses that follow a proven key concepts approach to education designed to help users understand the reasoning behind the processes in addition to teaching the processes. Each lesson builds on the information taught in the previous lesson and provides a logical “show-me” tutorial method of instruction. According to FANUC, upon completion of the course, students will possess a solid understanding of how to get a machine up and into production.

The company's on-line education system is intended to provide comprehensive content in a robust, interactive learning environment. Courses include 20-30 hours of material focused on helping users become fully proficient in machining center programming, turning center programming and parametric programming using FANUC custom macros.

Each course includes access to the FANUC eLearning online educational system, a one-year license for NCGuide CNC simulation software, email access to dedicated training instructors, all study material, exercises and tests. Upon successful completion of coursework and evaluations, students receive FANUC Academic Certification, confirming their mastery of the topic, the company says.

NCGuide is FANUC's CNC software running on a PC. As a teaching tool, it allows the student to experience a realistic operating environment without taking a machine out of production. With a one-year license, the user can take advantage of the PC-based simulation to continue their education even after they complete the course.
